There Will Be No Future Marine Biologists Without Your Donation

22741215.jpgWhy is this boy crying? Because we are only at 25% of what we need to fund three needy classrooms. We can definitely do this! Some of you have already helped us meet our end of the week goal and we thank you. I could go on about why you should donate and how important it is, but you already know the reasons. Seriously, take a moment and think of one reason why you shouldn’t give a little. Go ahead…do it right now….

I bet your two reasons are 1) I don’t have enough money and 2) It is too much work. You have at least a spare $10 to give so I am not buying number 1. As far as number 2 it will take less than 5 minutes. Alternatively, we could all not fund these challenges and for the next year you will have to listen to me rant. It is really up to you. In the long run, you will wish you donated a little. Remember the children.

You can also help spread the good word by emailing others and posting links on you own blogs.

Craig McClain is the Executive Director of the Lousiana University Marine Consortium. He has conducted deep-sea research for 20 years and published over 50 papers in the area. He has participated in and led dozens of oceanographic expeditions taken him to the Antarctic and the most remote regions of the Pacific and Atlantic. Craig’s research focuses on how energy drives the biology of marine invertebrates from individuals to ecosystems, specifically, seeking to uncover how organisms are adapted to different levels of carbon availability, i.e. food, and how this determines the kinds and number of species in different parts of the oceans. Additionally, Craig is obsessed with the size of things. Sometimes this translated into actually scientific research. Craig’s research has been featured on National Public Radio, Discovery Channel, Fox News, National Geographic and ABC News. In addition to his scientific research, Craig also advocates the need for scientists to connect with the public and is the founder and chief editor of the acclaimed Deep-Sea News (http://deepseanews.com/), a popular ocean-themed blog that has won numerous awards. His writing has been featured in Cosmos, Science Illustrated, American Scientist, Wired, Mental Floss, and the Open Lab: The Best Science Writing on the Web.
